Wyatt Roy

4BC Drive: Eighteen months ago, 21 year old member for Longman Wyatt Roy posed the point to Treasurer Wayne Swan in Parliament Question Time that he had never seen a Labor surplus in his lifetime.

Fast forward to the present and the Federal Government has now reneged on their 2013 surplus promise. Australia's youngest politician Wyatt Roy joins Gary Hardgrave to discuss.

  • Typical of your type Ben do not let the truth get in the way of a total delusion. Lets have a vote now, bring on the election and save all the lies and decieving that your lot are spinning out. This time around the people are awake to the liars you all are.

  • mick, the method of measuring the unemployment rate is unchanged from the Howard Govt days. If you aren't adding value in the business in which you work, then you might well find yourself out of work, but that could happen at any time. Your really not
    Interested in facts, are you! Unfortunately for you mick, we live in one of the best performing first world economies on the planet. If you don't like it, you should leave.

  • Mick why does the Libs always hand over to the Labor Party Economies on the decline while Labor hand over Economies on the rise? (Howard handed Hawke a stuffed economy Keating handed over to Howard an Economy on the rise andwas on the up and up, Howard handed Rudd an Economy on the downturn with a GFC to boot) History is not a Strong trait of the Right Wing, if history isnt on your side make it up!!! The Fact is the Australian Economy is the Envy of the Western World, and history proves that if Rudd went down the Path that you Right Wingers Wanted to, our economy would be stuffed with Hundreds of thousands of people out of work, collecting unemployment just like Europe and the US

  • If it is growing then the voters out there are not getting it there is no boom in real Aussie world, perhaps the hordes of overseas investors are. People are losing thier jobs and this will pick up dramatically in the new year, long term Australian businesses are closing down, Labor cannot continue to cook the unemployment figures any longer. You continue to push labor's lies when the game is up it show just how much of a mongrel you really are with your rubbery figures nothing is factual in your delusional reality. Bring on the election to end labor's madness.

  • mick, our economy has continued to grow since 2007, to the point where, to quote 2UE, our economy is the envy of the world.
